Single-Serving

ah, the single life
preparing pasta for days
pros and cons—and carbs

Rain

sitting in the rain
I contemplate, consider
life’s absurdities

rain, rain, go away
come again another day
preferably Wednesday

walking in the rain
feeling like Muir—up a tree
at one with nature

Origination

substances become
something somewhat wonderful
conditionally

primordial life
inanimate/animate
where to draw the line?

tiny building blocks
complexity runs rampant
built from the ground—up

a link to the past
from humans to molecules
paste & copy, cut

Cosmology

CMB

Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB)

once upon a time
all there was—was energy
it doesn’t matter

cosmic horizon
a sphere of primitive light
all encompassing

mysterious skies
dark matter/dark energy
filling in the gaps

finite—unbounded
universal expansion
accelerating
